Re: making lights
I missed this thread when it was new, but enjoyed reading through it. Making your own lights and other stuff is great fun. I felt so proud of myself when I came up with my first copper jewel light and then even better making a headlight out of a copper Portuguese kitchen pot with a leaded stained glass lens. Only kid on my block with one of those... ha!
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
